I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

comment hyperref conflicts with todonotes and chemfig packages
'Works for me'. Perhaps you could add \listfiles to your example and report what file list you get: I suspect a version conflict with a locally-installed version of one or more files.

comment Manual for chemistry and system biology?
I'm not sure exactly what you'd want in such a text. The basics of LaTeX stay much the same, and at least in chemistry most of the 'specialism' consists of diagrams which I'd suggest may well be best created using an external tool.

comment An unexpected outcome from PGF's \foreach
@AhmedMusa I've just double-checked: yes, the change I have does work for me with your example. The change needs to be made after loading TikZ, of course, but other than that there is nothing special going on.

comment An unexpected outcome from PGF's \foreach
@AhmedMusa Not needed here as the \edef is non-expandable, so TeX will do the assignment as expected: exactly the same as in the original definition. I do agree though it's 'better style' to terminate the assignment properly, either with \relax or a space.

comment Winedt 7, Doesn't show greek correctly
I think we'll need some more information on how you work: for example, how are your TeX files encoded, what packages do you use to support Greek, etc.

comment Can I use | as column separator in pgfplotstable?
@XièJìléi I've corrected that: I took some code from pgfplots and forget it was in a nested definition.
